16th placed Hamburg will continue their fight to avoid relegation in this match.

They will be hoping that they can win this game to halt their recent slide in form that has seen them lose their last 3 league games.

They currently have just 33 points from 31 league games and they are just 4 points ahead of Ingolstadt who are occupying the first relegation spot in the league table.

Hamburg lost their last home match to Darmstadt but prior to that loss, they were on a 4 game winning streak at home.

They scored at least 2 goals in three of those matches.

Mainz 05 are still not safe this season despite sitting 14th in the league table.

They currently have the number of points as their opponent.

If they lose this game, they will swap positions with Hamburg.

Mainz have won just 3 of their last 10 games and will be hoping to add to their number of wins with a win at the Volksparkstadion.

Their recent away form has not been good – they have lost 3 of their last 4 away games.
